It's cold and raining, the paint is drying on my current free flight builds so I am finishing up my D6 just need the guns mounted.
The specs are 24" span with 4 channels and powered with a 250 outrunner. Ready to fly weight is 7.2 oz well under the proposed 250gm FAA weight limit  Roll Eyes

Absolutely gorgeous!

Where or how did you get the Lozenge pattern?

All the best,

Cut it twice and it's still too short!

Thanks I hope it flies, I used AutoCAD to draw and print the covering. I used this pattern and colors I found surfing the net, my research found the D6 had 4 color camo. I have no idea how close the colors are but I think it looks good enough.

"Good enough" that's an under statement!

Can you post a file of your art work. And do you have a process written down? Like what type of inks used and the adhesive used to attach the tissue, do you shrink with water afterwards?

As you know the devil is in the details.

All the best,

I will see what I can do about the file.
I use an Epson printer as the ink is water resistant, I attach the tissue with a purple glue stick and shrink with water. A few coats of matt Krylon clear and that's it.
Making the cad files would take a small book to describe I have been using AutoCAD for 25 years and I am still learning. AutoCAD is really not the best program for making tissue files but it's what I know, I suspect CorelDraw would be a better program.
